If you have ever lost control of your car's steering while on Chula Vista, CA roads, then you know how frustrating this experience is. At Kia of Chula Vista, we want our region's motorists to be able to correctly identify the type of steering issues they have experienced, the most common of which are oversteer and understeer.

If the front portion of your vehicle was the first part that deviated from the correct turn arc, then this is known as oversteer, and it is caused by a loss of traction in the front wheels prior to the rear wheels breaking their traction.

If the back portion of your car was the first part that broke traction and veered off of your desired turn arc, then this is called understeer. It is caused by an unfortunate break in traction affecting the rear wheels of the vehicle before the front wheels lose their grip on the pavement.
